A few months ago I was invited by Connie Roberts to meet up with a few local women who also blog and all live in the area. Connie is very knowledgeable and I jumped at her invite, and also because she is a very nice lady and I loved the idea of meeting face to face!
The first meeting was in an Artsy Fartsy type restaurant run by a church and it was a really cool place. I think there were 5 of us there and this lunch meeting turned into the Nature Coast Bloggers! We laugh and have fun and share ideas and these women are becoming my teachers happily! Even though we all blog, we all have different themes. Most of us have several blogs like myself, but none have giveaway blogs, although one of the gals just joined Dove Chocolatiers and she is having one on her site.
Yesterday our group met at a local Dennys, actually 3 members missing as we are growing :)! We discussed some of the blogging conferences coming up and which ones were thought of as good, etc. We also talked about affiliates and making money with certain ones. I am really learning. I am so glad I was asked to join in the beginning by Connie and now we are good friends.
If there are any of you in the Nature Coast Area, we have been meeting in New Port Richey area, let me know and I will get you information. Warning, may be habit forming and cause rowdiness as an older man complained to our waitress in Dennys that we were too loud, and the waitress Brenda told him where the library is if he wanted quiet LOL! She fit in and we had so much fun with her we are going back there next month! So watch out Dennys, we shall return!
